Photographer's Note

Dusk in Hạ Long Bay


Although I still have pictures from my last journey for the next few years (ok, I agree, not all are good enough to present here), I suddenly thought that Ive never shown these photos here.
Taken in the same part of the world but in a different country.

The photos were taken in the most photographed part of Vietnam: the Hạ Long Bay.
The bay has exactly 1969 limestone islands and many limestone monoliths rise spectacularly from the ocean. Several of the islands are hollow, because caves have formed.

The photos were taken on a three-day (two-night) cruise.
We were 17 tourists (different European nationalities and a few Canadians); the boat was sufficiently spacious and actually it was a fairly comfortable trip with, in addition to the natural beauty, especially very good food.
When sailing out in Hạ Long I was shocked by the number of boats. I never saw so many together.
Once in the bay, however, you have a lot of space around your boat and you don't really experience the crowds (except during the visit of a particular cave).

Strange but for the night many boats moor close to each other.
Our boat took some distance from the others. My main photo shows the view I had from my cabin on the narrow passage to the wider area where most boats were moored.
